If you have a cut or hack that is offering to go septic here is a simple answer.

The Honey bandage.

Best dressing is fabric elastoplast, with a drop of as pure a honey s you can get, preferably your own on it.

It works as honey is hydroscopic and the water drawing ability takes the water from the bacteria and kills it.

Admin? Can we have a medical section as apitherapy is very important.

Hi Pete don't forget that the Hydrogen peroxide sterilises and the other active ingredients promote healing.

Not forgetting..

Just came to mind tonight with Julie having an infected finger. She has medical problems and honey works a treat for her.
